Aledmys Diaz: Do we want him and at what cost?
So, I'll start this thread by saying I know very little about Diaz but I'm very intrigued and want to know more. SS is the main position we don't have a current long term player at and we don't have a top prospect coming through the system to fill the void. We can argue back and forth about Santana, Polanco, and Goodrum being our SS of the future but that's not the point. Right now most positions we are either pretty set at or have a top prospect coming to fill the void. The main opening appears to be at SS in my opinion. We argued a lot about Stephen Drew but now I'd like to see the same argument for Diaz. Here's my questions/talking points. I honestly know little about him other than he's Cuban and he lied about his age. He's a SS and he's supposed to make some good money.
Is he Major League ready? if not how close?
Is he a sure thing to stick at SS defensively?
How much better of a prospect is he than our current MI guys like Santana/Goodrum/Polanco?
How much is he worth/how long term of deal should the Twins be willing to go?
